Got my new gadget today!! Very excited!!!

Hi Friends,

I just had to share my good (but thoroughly exhausting) day. I got my new car, not new new, but new to me. I have had a hoist fitted in the boot, so it lifts my scooter in and out, with me just pressing a button! My hubby bought it for me, we have been waiting nearly a year for the PIP assessment to all go through, and hopefully get awarded some help with mobility costs and care. But decided we were using up valuable time waiting to get on the mobility scheme, so have sourced it ourselves, even though we can't really afford it! But, I am housebound without it, (my scooter, out and about), and getting more and more have taken the bull by the horns and sorted ourselves. Just wanted to share my good day, even though totally exhausted and had to go rest for most of the afternoon, I rested happy, knowing I will hopefully be able to get out on my good days,even just to see something else besides these four walls!! Hope your day has not been too painful and you have been able to enjoy the good weather. Hugs to all. X
